3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Gastropub Tuulensuu. Rated on 11.01.2010
Aroma is slightly sweet with malty notes, roastiness and licorice. Flavour has roasted malts, some chocolate, coffee, ripe fruits and Belgian yeast. Not the most typical dubbel and actually close to a stout. Smoke is hardly observable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
, sampled 2010-03-20) Very dark amber with a small, lasting, beige head. Strongly smoky nose with roastiness and some dark fruit. Smoked maltiness also dominates the flavor, with the abbey part sweeped into the background. Oat brings nice rounded and velvety fullness to the flavor, but there’s also some roastiness present. Maybe not quite what this was supposed to be, but very good still.

7 Initially gentle smoked aroma, but fills in with more smoke and more roast as it warms.
4 Deep redy brown, tiny beige head
8 Sweet roastm malts, a bit burnt and earthy, and with some dry smoky tones
4 Smooth rich palate, carbonation a touch sharp.
15 Interesting combination, and brillianly crafted. Not particularly big and clever, but everything slots together well
